DA VINCI ROBOT-ASSISTED HYSTERECTOMY AND LYMPH NODE DISSECTION NORTHWESTERN MEMORIAL HOSPITAL CHICAGO, IL July 7, 2008

00:00:08 ANNOUNCER: Welcome to the OR-Live webcast presentation live from Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago, Illinois. During the program, it's easy for you to make referrals, make appointments, or request more information. Just click on the buttons on your screen and open the door to informed medical care. OR-Live, the vision of improving health. 00:00:34 DILJEET K. SINGH, M.D.: Welcome to Northwestern Memorial Hospital. I'm Dr. Diljeet Singh, one of the gynecologic oncologists here and we appreciate your visiting us for this webcast of an endometrial cancer surgery case. I'd like to introduce Dr. Todd Tillmanns who is here with us from the University of Tennessee and is an expert in robotic surgery. Then I'd like to introduce the director of the robotics program here at Northwestern, Dr. Patrick Lowe, and then the surgical team working with him today. 00:01:00 M. PATRICK LOWE, M.D.: Good afternoon. I'd like to once again welcome everybody to Northwestern Memorial Hospital this afternoon. Let me take a minute to introduce the surgical team. Our fellow at the bedside operating with us today is Dr. Anna Hoekstra. We also have a resident, Dr. Margarita Aponte. Our scrub today is Jeff Madden and our circulator is Shannon [Ricard]. Today we have a patient with endometrial cancer that we're going to perform a hysterectomy as well as a lymph node dissection. If you guys have questions during the video cast, email those questions in. We have two excellent moderators with us today who can answer some of those questions for you. We also have some objectives that we would like to review for the viewers today. I'd like to turn back to the moderators and Dr. Tillmanns is going to give a brief overview of the robotic surgical system. 00:01:55 TODD D. TILLMANNS, M.D.: Thank you Dr. Lowe. One of the benefits of robotic surgery is that you have [unclear] vision. Some of you can see here as Dr. Lowe is beginning his procedure, we can go back to the operating room, he has actually… 00:02:15 DILJEET K. SINGH, M.D.: Perhaps even take a look at the surgery. 00:02:18 TODD D. TILLMANNS, M.D.: Yeah. You can see that he has -- essentially he's looking through a viewfinder that gives him three-dimensional view and he also is able to pick up the tissue very easily because he can see things in three-dimensions, instead of the typical two dimensions that you see in standard laparoscopy. Right there, as you can see, he's lifting up what is the round ligament. He'll generally incise that right at this point to begin the case and to begin the procedure. 00:02:46
